So Chobani (the kick ass yogurt people) has come up with an interesting campaign that inspired me to participate: “10 for 10”. Basically, you come up 10 goals to accomplish for the next 10 months. Their blog shows examples of several of their own people and their goals. You can check it out here.
I totally came across this by accident one day. I had just recovered from the foodgasm I had when I ate a Chobani Bite. Raspberry yogurt with dark chocolate flecks in it. I’m normally not a big yogurt person, but there aren’t words for how awesome this stuff is. So I looked them up on Twitter, where I saw the 10 for 10 idea. I also tweeted them my compliments on the foodgasmic raspberry and chocolate combination. I’m pretty sure I told them I wanted to hump someone’s leg. I expect the restraining order any day.
On their blog, I really enjoyed reading through all the goals their folks shared with the world. When it came down to setting my own goals, I went for a mixture of healthy and fun. (Hey, I have to be honest…sometimes healthy and fun do not coincide for a fat girl embracing change…at least not at first.) Here’s what I’ve decided to challenge myself with:
March: Be a better snacker. Done!
(How did I do it? Check out the details in my Me First! post.)
April: Exercise 3 times a week, every week.
May: Finally get my passport.
June: Plant a pumpkin patch in the garden.
July: Complete my needlework project in time to enter it in the State Fair of Texas needlework competition.
August: Throw out my Frankenpants.
(My workout pants that have been used so much that I’ve had to repeatedly patch the inner thighs. By August, I want to be able to fit into the new ones hanging in my closet.)
September: Learn how to knit.
October: Harvest the pumpkin patch and give pumpkins to all the neighbors.
November: Finally have some wedding cake.
(Hot Mess Hubby and I couldn’t afford a wedding cake when we got married, so we’re throwing a 10th anniversary party this November…and I would love to finally get my wedding cake!)
December: Fight all the crazy Christmas shoppers in order to get a hold of the hottest toy of the year…and then hand it over to a Marine for “Toys for Tots”.
What about you? Can you come up with 10 goals in 10 months? Since there are only two days left in March, how about making it a goal to do something you’ve never done before? I know you can find something simple, yet rewarding. After that, the sky’s the limit.
So…what are your 10 for 10? Thrill me!
8 thoughts on “Chobani 10 for 10”
I write a list of 52 things to complete each year. Of this list, I’ve so far completed 8 (much less than I previously thought). The 10 I am going to most focus on are:
Spend a whole day completely silent.
Take a 1 week technology vacation.
Participate in Relay for Life.
Lose 50 pounds.
Learn how to use a sewing machine.
Stock my moms kitchen with groceries.
Build up a 3 month food supply.
Get a colonic.
Submit a photograph in a contest.
Sort of eclectic list. I never got all the way through it last year, so a bunch are carried over. But I really want to complete this for sure!
Hey there! 52 goals is awesome and incredibly ambitious. So psyched to have you on board with #10for10 goals. Please do share your posts and progress with us. We love it!

Thanks so much, Karen – I’m glad you like it…and I totally will!
This sounds like a fantastic idea! 10 for 10 is hard. hm, I think this past year, my greatest experiences have come from spur-of-the-moment, gut-feeling decisions. I would love to travel more though. Good Luck.

I LOVE this idea! It lays out short-term, achievable goals to fulfill within a year. I would definitely add (1) getting a passport month, (2) meatless month, (3) write everyday month, (4) do the dishes every night before bed month, (5) 50 pushups a day month, (6) try a new recipe a day month, (7) historical weekend visits month, (8) tv-free month (would be so hard, but I’ve always loved the idea!), (9) no eating out, Starbucks included, month, and (10) do all those crafty projects you’ve been meaning to do month. I might give this a go! Thanks for the inspiration =)
